Based at the Moffitt Cancer Center, Florida, Cancer Ecology is a small research group led by David Basanta. We are mathematical modellers who work with biologists and clinicians, trying to understand the ecology of tumors and the evolutionary dynamics of cancer progression and resistance to treatment.

Miles for Moffitt

Miles for Moffitt Parmvir Bahia, operations director for Pint of Science US, and yours truly finished the 8K race as part of Miles for Moffitt. Thanks to some of you, we managed to raise a very modest sum of money that will help researchers at Moffitt come with new ways to understand and treat different kinds of cancer.

For those of you near Tampa that want to help Moffitt, your next chance will be the Pint of Science Festival starting a week from Today (5/19-21). I have talked about our science outreach effort in Tampa (and other 4 US cities as well as 6 countries) before. Now you know  that if you come to the Tampa event you can help us raise money for Cancer Research at Moffitt. So go ahead and book your place here.
